from a mother fish for an artificial spawning technology to produce fingerlings. The eggs are screened carefully for quality to ensure success in the next steps of the breeding process.
In Viet Nam
Rare Mekong Fish out of Danger for now.

As giant fish species become scarce in the Mekong River, scientists have put the protection of these species on their agendas. Pham Thanh Long finds out what it takes to parent a new generation of rare fish. Scientist Huynh Huu Ngai has a knack for playing God, and his efforts have helped one species of rare fish survive and boost its population in Cuu Long (Mekong) River. "At this point, I can say that I have successfully managed to preserve the giant fish species," Ngai said, after more than two years of artificially breeding and raising ca ho, the giant barb (Catlocarpio siamensis). Ngai has sent thousands of fingerlings and juvenile fish to farms in Mekong Delta provinces to rejuvenate the species’ development ... Click here to read more.

In Bismarck, North Dakota,
Fish Hatchery is Entering Busy Season.
It's not easy being a fish egg! Predators and adverse water conditions kill many before they even hatch. In fact, only a small percentage of the fish eggs laid in a natural water environment actually live long enough to add to the fish population. "Natural reproduction is kind of a hit or miss," said Ron Zitzow, manager of the Valley City National Fish Hatchery, located outside Valley City. Often, bullheads, suckers or birds eat the eggs, said Ron Manson, biological science technician at the hatchery. Or silt from runoff covers the eggs, depriving them of oxygen. Changing water levels can leave some fish eggs high and dry. That's where the National Fish Hatchery System comes in. Between 65 percent and 80 percent of the fish eggs incubated there hatch. "You get a lot higher percentage of survival by doing it through the hatchery system," Mason said. "You don't have the predators, you don't have the silt." Click here to read more.
In the South and Western Pacific Ocean
Fish are Growing Faster due to Climate Change.
Changes in growth rates in some coastal and long-lived deep-ocean fish species in the south west Pacific are consistent with shifts in wind systems and water temperatures, according to new Australian research published in the United States this week. “We have drawn correlations between the growth of fish species related to their environmental conditions – faster growth in waters above a depth of 250 metres and slower rates of growth below 1,000 metres,” says lead author, Dr Ron Thresher. “These observations suggest that global climate change has enhanced some elements of productivity of shallow-water stocks but at the same time reduced the productivity and possibly the resilience of deep water stocks,” he says. A biological oceanographer with CSIRO’s Wealth from Oceans Research Flagship, Dr Thresher said the research – published in the latest edition of the US science journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences – is based on the examination of fish ear bones, or otoliths, which show similar characteristics to the growth rings used to date the age of trees.  The work was done in collaboration with the Victorian Marine and Aquatic Fisheries Research Institute, which has specialist skills in analyzing otoliths. Click here to read more.
In Pueblo, Colorado,
Study will Look at Aquatic Life in Creek.
Aquatic life, not just the chemicals in the water, will be looked at in depth for the first time in a study of water quality on Fountain Creek by Colorado State University-Pueblo. The three-year, $1 million study is still searching for funds for its five-pronged study of Fountain Creek. “We’ve been working on the design of these experimental studies for some time and have been involving the experts,” Kristina Proctor, dean of science and mathematics at CSU-Pueblo said Tuesday. “For the breadth of work being done, this is a very comprehensive study.

At Northwestern University in Illinois
Gold Nanoparticles Help Detect a Toxic Metal: Mercury.
With gold nanoparticles, DNA and some smart chemistry as their tools, scientists at Northwestern have developed a simple "litmus test" for mercury that eventually could be used for on-the-spot environmental monitoring of bodies of water, such as rivers, streams, lakes and oceans, to evaluate their safety as food and drinking water sources. An article detailing the colorimetric screening technology and its success detecting mercury will be published online April 27 by Angewandte Chemie, the prestigious European journal of applied chemistry. Methyl mercury, a neurotoxin that is particularly dangerous to young children and pregnant women, is the form of mercury people ingest when they eat contaminated fish and shellfish. Mercury is released into the air through industrial pollution, falling into bodies of water and polluting the waters in which fish and shellfish live. Bacteria in the aquatic environment then convert water-soluble mercuric ion (Hg2+) into methyl mercury, which accumulates in varying amounts in fish and shellfish. Click here to read more.
